Catholic professors take stand against Trump’s call for moratorium on Muslim immigration
Breana Noble - Hillsdale College • January 21, 2016


University of Detroit Mercy seeks to be ‘safe place for people of all faiths and beliefs’

Faculty at the University of Detroit Mercy — a Jesuit Catholic institution — recently adopted a statement to “stand with the Muslim community against Islamophobia.”

Vox Wrote:
Where "Islamophobia" means "the lack of desire to allow immigration of Muslims into non-Muslim lands due to the Muslim religion's promoting violence and misogyny, and not being able to co-exist with other religions."

Faculty senate President Heather Hill-Vásquez said the statement was prompted by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s stance that, if elected president, he would institute a moratorium on Muslim immigration into the United States.

While the statement does not call Trump out by name, it states “anti-Muslim rhetoric emerging from a number of political figures on the national stage [is] reckless,” adding it fosters “an atmosphere of violence and intolerance against Muslims and their places of worship across the nation.”

Vox Wrote:So NOW they're worried about violence, eh? Violence against Christians, Europeans, women, homosexuals -- fine and good! But violence against Muslims (which isn't happening anyway) is bad.  I get it.

The University of Detroit Mercy is close to Dearborn, Michigan, which has the largest population of Arab Americans in the U.S. Many students, faculty and staff at the school are of the Muslim faith, according to the statement.

It was approved by a vote of 25 to 2 in mid-December and emailed to students and alumni as well as posted on Facebook, declaring the university “is a sanctuary where the human rights and faith of all our students will be respected, and where discrimination or violence against any member of our community, faculty, or staff will not be tolerated.”

Hill-Vásquez told The College Fix the statement aligns with Detroit Mercy’s values.

“The university values intellect and logic,” Hill-Vásquez said in a telephone interview earlier this week. “The faculty decided that what that presidential candidate was stating was not only illogical but unethical.”

Vox Wrote:

Yeah, 'cause it's totally "illogical" and "unethical" for a people to want to guard their families and their culture. It just doesn't make any sense, right? (well, unless they're not EED, of course). And it's definitely meeeeean to put your own kids before someone else's kids. Golly!

Hill-Vásquez said there have not been any reports of intolerance toward Muslims on the university’s campus. She said she has received an “overwhelmingly positive” response from students and alumni about the passage of the statement.

Vox Wrote:
Well, of course the response has been "overwhelmingly positive"! Most of those kids have been brainwashed since kindergarten, and the ones who've survived know full well that saying anything would get them kicked out of school or forced to attend what amount to re-education camps.

“The hope is that in passing that statement and making it public to the university community as well as the university community outside into Detroit and beyond is stating that this is a safe place for people of all faiths and beliefs, ethnicities, genders, and so on and so forth,” Hill-Vásquez said.

Although the university is a Catholic institution following the Jesuit and Mercy traditions, Hill-Vásquez said the statement concerning Muslims aligns with the principles of inclusiveness and compassion that the Catholic Church emphasizes.

The statement also declares its role in Detroit Mercy’s purpose.

“The mission of our university, our ideals as American citizens, and our obligations as public intellectuals and educators, all demand that we take an unambiguous stance against bigotry and xenophobia,” the statement said.

LOL "Public 'intellectuals'" The only kind of alleged "intellectual" that's allowed in public is the likes of them. A$&#@*@s.

Don't worry, you guys. She will never read this. Public intellectuals never venture outside their safe space ;)

Oh yes, a courage stand indeed!  Such courage these professors have, against all odds and mainstream thinking!  We can't let anyone veer us off course to being fully cucked!

What a complete disgrace to the name of Catholicism. 

There forefathers would disown them if they could for their criminal naivety, cowardice, and treachery to the Faith and their countries.

What scandal it must to be to common sense thinking non-Catholics who will mistakenly equate Catholicism with the desire to bring unregulated amounts of Muslims into one's own country because of these sorry individuals and their distorted "charity."

I see you see what I did.  I'm not sure if it was a "him" or a "she."  Perhaps we could combine the two terms into "shim?"
